Question -- would the full_audit module and something scanning syslog
output also help you?

full_audit can do syslog messages per operation, and if you appropriately
configure your syslog daemon to send the messages to unison in a proper
format, you might get away without having to modify Samba. The main
difference is that going via syslog is even more asynchronous, but if
I read your code correctly the vfs module does not wait for unison to
complete its job, right?
